Statement of Commitment to Child Safety
All children and young people who come to Dandenong Ranges Christadelphians (the ecclesia) activities have a right to feel and be safe. We are committed to the safety and well-being of all children and young people. We are committed to providing a child-safe and child-friendly environment, where children and young people are safe and feel safe and are able to actively participate in decisions that affect their lives.
We have zero tolerance for child abuse and other harm, and we are committed to acting in children’s best interests and keeping them safe from harm.
The Ecclesia regards its child protection responsibilities with great importance and is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations, and the maintenance of a child-safe culture.
Each member of the ecclesial community has a responsibility to understand that they have a role to play, both individually and collectively, to ensure the well-being and safety of children at our events and as part of our faith community. God cares for children and so do we.
